Commenting on TEDxGatewaySalon, Yashraj Akashi, Senior Ambassador for the TEDx Program in India said, “Women are making big strides for equality and justice across the globe, and India is no exception. Day in and day out, women are challenging traditional roles to pave the way for a brighter and more just India. We are celebrating these pioneers making power moves, brilliant people who are just getting started, and those who tirelessly show up as allies and advocates.”
